WHAT MEN LIVE BY

WHERE LOVE IS, THERE GOD IS ALSO

A HORSE WHO WORE SNOW SHOES.

from Cinderella The Little Glass Slipper





Mr. Brown had to go to his camp at Pine Tree Valley, which is in
the midst of the mountains in California.

His men were cutting down the giant trees, and piling them in
readiness for the Spring freshet, or floods of the river, when
the snows melted. Then they would slide them down the mountain
sides to the little villages below.

There was a great deal of snow on the mountains, and Mr. Brown
knew it would be hard work climbing to the camp, but Lady Gray
was strong, and used to it.

Lady Gray was Mr. Brown's pet horse, and carried him everywhere.
She was always happy when her master was in the saddle.

But to-day the snow was very deep and soon Mr. Brown had to get
off, throw away the saddle, and lead her. They had to stop very
often, and lean against the trees and rocks for support, while
they rested and regained their breath.

In places the snow was so deep and soft, that they sank above
their knees. Late in the afternoon they reached the camp nearly
exhausted, and it was several days before they were able to
return.

The snow was still deep and Mr. Brown knew he must go back on
snow-shoes, but he was afraid Lady Gray would have to be left
behind.

Finally one of the men suggested making her some snow-shoes.
They cut four round pieces of board, twelve inches across, and
fastened them on with rope. Lady Gray seemed to understand what
they were for and tried very hard to walk in them.

She was very awkward at first and could hardly stand up, but by
practicing a little every day she was soon able to manage nicely.

So Mr. Brown and Lady Gray both returned on snow-shoes, and how
every one did laugh when they saw them.

But Lady Gray never could have done it if she had not tried.
